Bonefish Paradise Fishing Services

If you’re looking to spend a vacation in the Bahamas, spend it on the breathtaking flats that surround this island. Bonefish Paradise Fishing Services isn’t named like it is for no reason and they’ll show you just why - join them in stalking the flats for the gorgeous fish that live there.

Climb aboard the 17’ flats boat manufactured by Andros, perfectly suitable for this type of terrain. She has been recently restored (in 2015), so everything is in tip-top shape. She’s powered by a solid 85 HP Yamaha outboard engine. On board you can find Captain Dwayne Knowles, a captain with over 26 years of experience guiding customers in the waters of the Bahamas.

The flats are home to many exciting species you can target, among which are the world famous Tarpon, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, as well as the Permit, Lemon and Blacktip Sharks, and Bonefish. Fishing techniques that are available are spinning (for Barracuda) and fly fishing - Capt. Dwayne is an expert at those. Customers should bring their own spinning gear and flyfishing equipment is available for an extra charge.

Clients are recommended to stay at Greenwich Creek Lodge, though any accommodation close is fine too. The charter has a strict catch and release policy in please, though clients can keep Snapper if they intend to eat it afterward. Children are welcome on board but there is a 9 years old minimum age policy.
